奉獻社區 服務社區

 

   (本報訊) 9月28日,克里夫蘭 North Coast Community Homes在Hunting Valley 隆重舉辦了一年一度的甜蜜家園捐款晩宴,來自社區各大企業與個人紛紛慷慨解囊,支持這次盛會。當日一張票是$250,當晩有250人支持了這次捐款晩宴。這捐款是爲社區殘疾人謀福利,捐來的款就是造房子來提供殘疾人住。
     今年8月,原來在克里夫蘭電視3台的主持人Dick Russ特意找到本報,希望本報能呼籲華人社團支持這項有意義的活動,組織籌備這次捐款活動的還有ITM的總裁JACK Craciun III,他還特意向遠在伯克利大學的著名書法家周愛琴女士求助,周女士贈送了二副字和與愛,在這次捐款中,克里夫蘭黃唯大律師也購買了一桌讓年輕的亞裔積極參與這樣有意義的活動。


      本報曾經報道過在匹兹堡有一家華人,他們的女兒是殘疾人,當時就知道美國是世界上殘疾人享受最好待遇的國家,在美國殘疾人的敎育、就業等方面都有保障。社會對殘疾人的日常生活給予了無微不至的照顧,行動不便是殘疾人一個很大困擾, 爲瞭解決或減輕殘疾人的困難,美國各地在道路、公共汽車交通等方面都爲肢體有殘疾的人和盲人提供無障礙設施。 例如:商店、飯店、旅館、圖書館、學校、影劇院等公共場所都設有無障礙坡道,還設有殘疾人專用的停車位和殘疾人專用厠所。街道的十字路口都裝有過街紅緑燈按鈕,供殘疾人使用,電梯的按鈕位置都安裝得比較低,樓層也都有盲文標記。
      早在1990年,美國國會通過了“美國殘疾人法案”,各州也制定了對殘疾人的法律規定。保證殘疾人能夠過上比較寬裕的生活。美國的《殘疾人敎育法》規定,家長和學校方面要爲每個殘疾學生制定因人而異的敎育計劃。隨着美國殘疾人敎育事業的發展,美國國會又對有關法律做了相應的修改,強調要把殘疾學生完全納入正常課堂,使他們和其他學生採用同樣的標準,學習同樣的課程。
      在美國,殘疾人的就業機制被納入了國家的反歧視法律,成爲人權問題的一方面,倍受各界的重視。美國的《殘疾人歧視法》是1995年通過的,這項法律規定,必須對殘疾人實施平等待遇;如果殘疾人認爲自己受到了不公正的歧視性待遇,就可以向法院提出訴訟。這些訴訟一旦提出,一般先由就業主管機構進行調解,也可由獨立的勞動關係委員會進行仲裁,或者由勞工法庭判決。
      美國勞工部每年10月均舉行全美殘疾人就業意識宣傳月活動,旨在提高人民對殘疾人就業問題的認識並表彰美國殘疾人所做出的各種貢獻。今年10月1日 據美通社-PR Newswire報道: 美國勞工部殘疾人就業政策辦公室 (U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy) 稱,隨著美國繼續從經濟不景氣中走出,殘疾成年人失業率仍保持在14.1%,這將近是正常成人失業率的2兩倍。在10月全美殘疾人就業意識宣傳月 (National Disability Employment Awareness Month) 中, Goodwill Industries International 將鼓勵公私行業的雇主通雇傭符合要求的殘疾人士來擴大其員工隊伍。
     雇傭美國殘疾人並不是一項慈善事業。大部分雇主報吿稱,雇傭殘疾人士沒有成本,或者費用很低。據 Job Accommodation Network 稱,58%的雇主表示錄用殘疾人並為其提供就業崗位基本沒有任何費用。此外,這些為殘疾人提供就業崗位的雇主稱他們收益頗多,包括員工留任度、增加員工生產力和由於人員更替減少而最終節約成本。支援美國勞工部並鼓勵各公司及組織營造更具包容性的企業文化,即重視多元化並鼓勵公司領導者招募、錄用、留用並培養符合條件的殘疾人,這最終將使所有人受益。
      North Coast Community Homes (NCCH)是一個無盈利機構,主要是幫助殘疾人和精神不正常者提供吃住行,美國社會十分重視這一群體。 另外ITM的總裁JACK Craciun III,表示:10月份著名藝術家周愛琴將來克里夫蘭舉辦畫展並首次對她的字畫舉行拍賣儀式。
